To Satisfy Minnesota Roster Training Requirements:
Court Interpreter Ethics Training & Testing
The first step to joining the MN Court Interpreter Program is attending our ethics training and testing. Interpreters who want to work in Minnesota state courts must attend a three-hour Ethics Training Session and receive a passing score on the Ethics Exam in order to be added to the Minnesota Statewide Roster of Court Interpreters.
Court Interpreter Ethics Training and Exam are offered twice a year. The next class will be offered in the fall, 2013.
New Court Interpreter Orientation
Interpreters who have passed the Ethics Exam are welcome to attend our two-day Orientation Program for Court Interpreters, a mandatory step in joining the Minnesota Court Interpreter Roster. This orientation program provides Court Interpreters an introduction to the Minnesota Judicial system, describes the role of court interpreters, identifies common legal terms, and teaches interpreters skill-building techniques.
